I was at Slipstream Performance yesterday and the owner was telling me there is guy at Casino with a lot of GS/X bikes, almost like a museum or something.
Anyone know anything about it?

Hhhmmmmm, interesting. On the ride to the S.O.O. this year we stopped for fuel at Casino and while in the servo a bloke came over and started talking about Kats ( he owned some in his younger days) and told us one of his mates had bought three 1100S Kats new in 1982. One is still his regular ride, one is a dry Sunday special ride and the third one has not been assembled yet.

Sorry Nick, the three Kat owner isn't interested in sharing the Kat love, pity.

The bloke at Slipstream was saying you can ring old mate and check it all out.
However he didnt have any details?
Could just be a case of mistaken memory?

Not to worry Glen as it will be his loss, "Enjoy looking at your Kat's, riding your Kat's and we will wave to you next time we ride by".

The bloke in question is Mark Geering, he goes by the nickname 'Gyro' & lives in Casino & he does indeed have a shed full of restored & modified big bore aircooled Suzis.
Check out some of his bikes here - http://shotzphoto.blogspot.com.au/2011/04/mark-gyro-geering-and-his-pair-of.html
There are links at the bottom of the page to see more of his bikes.
